After Effects from Adobe is a motion graphics program available for both PC and Mac computers. The program is useful for 2D animation and visual effects compositing as well as touching up images with colour correction and image adjustment. Within After Effects, you can add a text box anywhere on your image to add text and titles.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open After Effects and load the project that you wish to work on.

  2. 2

    Click on the text box icon from the toolbar at the top of the window to change your cursor to the text tool.

  3. 3

    Click and drag to create a text box. To make room for multi-line text, create a box that is large enough and long enough to contain your text.

  4. 4

    Type your text into the text box.

  5. 5

    Press the "Enter" key on you computer to skip to the next line and create a new paragraph for multi-line text.
